A few days, I showed you could improve your shop sales by examining the item (granular) level the quantity, profit and sales.  It produced a lot of comments. These are important, but they are not considered the most crucial measurement in modern retail.  

The most crucial measure today is the Gross Margin Return on Investment (GMROI)

I will show you here what it is and how to get it immediately from your system.

Using GMROI you can get shop profit up, often dramatically.

What it measures is for every dollar invested in an item by the retailer, what profit did the retailer get back. It combines sales,  margins, stock turns and investment theory into one number.

The calculation is.

GMROI = ($Gross Sales -$Cost)/($Ave inventory at cost)

Example 

-Consider an item A with an annual sales of $1000 at a Gross Margin (or Gross Profit) of 30%

Gross Margin $$ = $300.00

Say my stock holding on an average over the year was $200

My GMROI = $300.00 / $200.00 = $1.5

What you get with this product is $1.50 back for every $1.00 you invested in that item.

- Now say we have an item B with an annual sales of $2000 at a Gross Margin (or Gross Profit) of 25%

Gross Margin $$ = $500.00

Say my stock holding on an average over the year again was $200

My GMROI = $500.00 / $200.00 = $2.5, so for every dollar, I put into this item, I get back $2.5, which is much better.

Based on this, you should push item B more even though its margins are lower. This is because it has a higher stock turn. So in theory what want items B.

Unfortunately this is an impossible calculation for a person to do for all the items in most shops manually. But it is no problem for a computer.

So what we have made is a training video to show you how to get these figures.

Please get a feel of what your items GMROI are and I will in a couple of days show you some of the benefits and limitations of it. 

Enjoy

Protecting your information in most retail shops is hard. This is as generally, many people in your business have access to your system. We used to set up all our clients with a secret VeraCrypt drive to get over this problem. No-one can read that drive unless they have the password. To get your information, they need your password to log into your VeraCrypt program. This makes your information secure on an open network. 

This is one of the best and trusted encryption software for Windows. 

You can get a copy of the software here.

For an explanation on how to use it and set it up, look here.

If you are going to use it, here are some tips.

1) Never use AES+SHA-512. There are many other options, so select something else. This is because if someone is trying to break into your system, they will assume you are using it.

2) Do a complete shutdown when you finish with Veracrypt. You can do this by hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard and then click the "Shut down" option in the Start Menu. This is because your password is in RAM, and the hibernation file 

3) Use a new password and make it long. Almost all cracked systems are because someone knows or guesses your password, e.g. your child's birth date. 

4)  Make a "Hidden VeraCrypt volume" for your sensitive information. 

Doing this is another advantage too if your computers are lost or stolen, no one can read your private information.


Enjoy your privacy.

My post on the need of item sales information caused a lot of inquiries. 

-The problem is that besides sales, many people want to know the items that sell the most.

-The items that give the most profit, stock turns, etc., in a category, department, location, etc.

So go to Register reports > Stock> Top N Stock Sales for a Given Period.

Let us say you want to know, for this range, what sells the more by quantity, well it is easy to find out. Click "Select Top By" above and click "Units Sold". Retail experts call this the vote. They consider that the shoppers are when they buy they vote on that item. That is considered to be why people are coming into your shop. 

I think a more meaningful measure is the profit item below it. This shows the things that are producing money for you. 

A useful idea that works is to put near the best selling item, the most profitable items.

I do suggest that you try out these options above now and experiment with them.

The world is moving towards a mobile-first mindset. 

Currently, we have the most advanced SMS receipting in our marketplace and its FREE.  Its called DTI.  For over a year it has helped our clients save money.

The big plus is that better service that the retailer can provide the shopper. Many now feel that physical receipts clutter up their wallet. Also, they are often lost, are difficult to collate and fade. That is why many in public like e-receipt. This is partly why the majors often provide this service. It closes the loop between the offline and online world.

Studies show that nothing will connect with your customer better than SMS. I have seen figures are that over 98% of SMS messages are opened. Most immediately. No other channel comes even close to these figures. What it means is that you can interact with your customer effectively.

What makes it particularly useful is that the message is delivered directly to your customer. Emails are often now protected by ISP spam and customer's filters. These often block your messages.

Why not try it out?

Many of our clients use it now with significant effect, and it save them money on receipt printing too.

This is a problem faced by our clients that have shoe shops, in our specialised shoe pos software. I cannot see why any retailer cannot use this tip.

The situation is that a huge number of very similar products exist but almost all the sales are in a few lines. This is why most POS systems are useless in shoe shops. They show what we call the granular sales of the department, not the item sales. 

This is where our sales per product reports come in.

These make it easy to identify your best (and worst) selling products. They help you to determine your winners and losers. Suppose a particular product is selling well, its a winner, so you could consider ordering more of it. If the product is not performing, then the early you find out, the better.

This can be useful in any industry, and let me shop you step by step how to find your winners.

Go to Register reports.

 

Now pick "Top N Stock Sales for a Given Period."

 

Now in the form put in the last four weeks, pick a category and outcomes a report with your winners on top.

Now do something!

Hot point for discussion today is that neither Facebook nor the Australian government was bluffing. Both are now busy blaming each other. 

 

Clearly, Facebook, are more concerned about larger jurisdictions than the Australian government. US, UK and European Union as well as talk in many countries like Brazil and Indonesia. For example, Australia has 14 million Facebook users, and Brazil has over 130 million. To agree with the Australian government could cost Facebook billions of dollars. So Facebook has blocked content from a range of Australia organisations. Besides news, they also stopped a range of sites, e.g. Harvey Norman, Bowel Cancer Australia, University of South Australia and realestate.com.au. This will be a blow to many of these people. 

Still, how does it affect us?  

The first point is that none of that money Facebook was to pay was intended to go to my clients even though the online availability of news has affected many of them too.  

Those who run a Facebook page for their business will need to select where they get their news they share carefully. Currently, Facebook does not tell you that it does not share; it just does not share the page. As many pages are affected beside news sites, you may not know it was not posted to your target market. What you need to do is once you post to Facebook go back into your personal page and see if it was shared with them. If it was not, then you need to search for a Facebook allowed site with similar information. 

It will affect many of the online promotions until the advertisers adjust.

Other then that can you see any effect? I can't so let us move on.

 

Comments

ARE YOU GOING TO PAY CHANNEL 10 FOR POSTING A LINK TO THEIR CONTENT

I was really just making the point that the whole thing is a bit silly because this is what the proposed legislation whats facebook to do. If a media company places content with a link on their facebook page then the proposed legislation says facebook must pay for each times someone clicks on it and goes the the original content provider

Facebook claim that this traffic they direct to the publishers is worth over $400 million a year and they do this for free. 

 

From what I can see, the Google News Showcase is going to be protected by a paywall,probably to be paid for by ads so Google will not pay anything either, it will be the consumer that pays.

When your Point of Sale System was set up, we did much to get it to work, and many decisions were made.

A few days ago, in a cafe running our system, a staff's boyfriend added an email processor to the system. It brought the whole system down. All that was required was one change in a drivers device.   It took a long time to get that system back to work. 

Letting unauthorised people get into your system is inviting a problem.

Besides, it is a business system! If a staff member wants to access their private emails, tell them to use their smartphone. You can make a staff and/or public WI-FI account just for this purpose.

If so do not miss out on your Instant asset write-off again!

This tax write-off has saved a lot of money and improved the cash flow for my clients. So the good news was the extension of the instant asset write-off.  The better news was that it was increased to $150,000.

Tax details are here

Here is how it works

Say you were to buy a point of sale system for $5,000. Well, it does not cost you $5,000 as 10% of this is GST which you will be getting straight back so your proposed cost is $4,500.

The system without the Instant Tax write off would allow only 15% of this depreciation. This works out to a tax deduction of $675

- Let us say your company tax rate is about 26%, so you would get back $175.50 in income tax credits.

** This means to fund this in the first year it will cost $4324.50 **

Now with the Instant tax write off in place

- 100% of this would be depreciation

- If the company tax rate is again 26%, which means the business will get back $1170.00 in income tax credit.

** Which means that the business needs to fund this in the first year is $3330.00 ** a saving of you $994.50

This is a substantial saving!

Are you ready to take advantage of this threshold increase to get or upgrade a point of sale system from us? If so talk to us about how we can assist in keeping your business moving!

NOW is the time!

And please I am no accountant so check with your accountant about your situation first as it may be different.

Most mobile in their payment solutions has a section where a person can add a loyalty barcode. Why should I carry ten plus different loyalty cards when I can use this section. Retailers know this, so now they are moving away from plastic retail loyalty cards and going digital.  The added benefit is that they save money on plastic cards.

To do this, you need a 2D Imager Barcode Scanners to scan barcodes on mobile devices. While laser scanners' low price point is now attractive, do not buy these scanners if you intend to scan a barcode off of a mobile phone screen as they cannot scan the mobile screen. This is because these scanners emit light, and then they check the reflected light. The problem is that modern mobile screens today have anti-reflection technology to prevent glare so the laser scanner cannot read the reflected light.  

For this reason, we now recommend 2D imaging barcode scanners.

Now is the time to look at what stock you have leftover from Chinese New Year and Valentines Day. 

Here is a quick and straightforward way to start. It will take you a second to do and should pick up most of it. 

Go to Register reports > Stock > Slow-moving Stock lines

Put in the parameters. I would suggest going by departments because it is easier to assess and collect as it is logical. Once collected, you will need to decide what to do with it. While you are at it, you may as well check the shrinkage.

This is one report in our point of sale software that can help you expand your business and grow.

This afternoon, Premier Daniel Andrews announced that Victoria would begin another five-day stage four lockdown from midnight tonight. Again because of problems in quarantine. Restrictions are here listed. If you need to know your shops or homes 5 KM radius click here.

This could not happen for our Victorian clients in a worse time, losing most of the trade with the Australian Open, Valentine's Day, the weddings, and functions now all delayed. It is another massive blow to our economy, which was starting to get back on its feet. Many are going to have stock that will need to be written off, who wants Valentine's Day stock after the day.

Still, as we head into lockdown once again, it's important to remember that we have been here before with you so we will keep doing it. We do not expect any difficulties in continuing our support to you.

Still, for now, our office will be closed.

These new receipt printers look stylish. Something important but often overlooked as they are often on the front counter as they view the public. 

I liked that they have a warning with an alarm and/or flashing light signal if the receipt is not picked up. This function would be useful for many, e.g. packing in a storeroom or a kitchen in a restaurant. 

Another cool function is that it has a memory, and if you lose the last receipt, e.g. paper jam, it can reprint it.

They are also fast.

Today marks the beginning of a new year based on the Chinese lunar calendar. Unfortunately, this Lunar New Year many will not celebrate by dining out or going to a gathering as the events are scaled-down, cancelled and being shifted online. 

Shame as I took the family last year and we enjoyed the festivities a lot.

Still, goodbye to the old year and a happy welcome to the new year!

May your wishes come true in a blissful year!

This is the Last minute shopper, you know the person that decides to go shopping for Chinese New Year or Valentine's Day in the last few minutes in a mad rush. 

I've been there myself, thrown out of the house and told to come up with a suitable gift for the occasion. 

This is good news for savvy shop manager ready for this last-minute rush. Here are some tips.

1. Put a sign on the window, so this person knows you have something.

2. Make a featured area with items suitable and easy to find outside on a stand. 

If you are not sure what to offer on that day, see what sold well last year on that day, it will give you some ideas.

This is easy in our POS system.

Go to Register reports.

 

Now select "Top N Stock Sales for a Given Period".

Select the day. 

Outcomes a report with the top sellers for that day 

3. Offer clear gift alternatives, remember often this shopper has little idea of what to buy. 

4. Offer gift wrap

5. Have appropriate greeting cards on offer if possible.

Final note: Much of the stock is lost if you do not sell on the day, so consider doing deals.

Stock turns vital because most of our money is in inventory. If it is not selling well, the funds will not be available to pay employees, suppliers, banks, etc. So look at this report.

It is easy to get your report. It takes a second.

Go to Main Menu > Cash Register > Register Reports > expand Stock > select/double the click the report “Show Stock Turn by Dissection and Item.

Now select the appropriate options and then click the View Report button. I suggest running it for the past last five (5) years, the previous year, and the previous three (3) months and compare the figures. This gives you a long, medium, and short-range. See how different departments are going.

Now, you can see trends.

Like everything, you need to review these figures with intelligence. Too high figures can mean you are understocked. 
Too low often means you are overstocked.

Have a shot and see how you go.

Many of our clients are reporting that their sales slightly down. Yet there are significant changes in Australia's shoppers'  behaviour from coronavirus.

As readers know we have an inbuilt traffic monitoring software in our POS Software. This will show what it can do.

This chart is overall retail traffic above by Kepler, a well-known traffic measurement consulting company in Australia for the last week of January. You can find it here.

I will take you through the options so you can see how Australians shoppers are changing.  

The most important lines are green which is this year and yellow that is last year. 

On the top left, you can see the PASSER-BY by weeks. This measures the number of people that walked past shops. As you can see this fell by 5.3%, what it means is that fewer people are coming now to window shop. 

But look at the chart labelled SFC, (middle right) this is the ratio of transactions to those who came into the shop. Then look at the chart ATV, which shows the transaction value that the shoppers are doing. Both are up. Shoppers are buying more.

As I stated here before, COVID has changed the priority for shoppers. They are now are not window-shopping.  They are not going to an enclosed shopping centre to spend a day socialising with friends over lunch and buying.  They know what they want. They are coming to get it. So they are going shopping on a planned mission, to an open street close to them. 

As such they are now trying new shops. So I expect that people you have never seen are coming to your shop.

Today is a holiday for something your business probably can't do without, your computer. 

CLEAN OUT YOUR COMPUTER DAY

It is a great reminder to give your computer some tender loving care (TLC) and clean up your computer.

A computer is a mechanical device, it will not last forever, yet some simple cleaning tips can help increase its life. 

What happens is that over time, dust and dirt will build up in the computer, keyboards, monitors, etc. 

Left unchecked, it can damage everything. 

It does not take much to clean a computer. I find regularly used cleaning products work fine. If you need a blower, a hairdryer with cold air works fine.

Note if you have seen the movie Zoolander and this is you as the computer mechanics, now stop reading and ask someone else to do the cleaning.

Now before doing anything 

** Please turn off and unplug everything before you start cleaning. **

This is a video that I do suggest the person cleaning your computer views first and remember there is a good reason why this holiday was set up on a Monday wasif something goes wrong on a weekday you can get professional help if something goes really wrong.

For months now, we have been rolling out DTI, you can have it in minutes. This is the latest form of EFTPOS and Credit card receipting, reporting, and tracking.

It sends receipts by SMS and/or email free. 

Soon you will be able to send the receipt directly into your customer banking app making it, what we call a smart receipt. The advantages of smart receipts are that they speed up the check out as receipts can be sent directly to the customer's banking app.

-Conventual receipt requires an operator to tear off and present to the customer. Besides labour costs, we also have the cost of printing. 

-Digital receipt by SMS requires from you 
a) An outlay of about $1,000 for extra equipment, including a new printer and dongle to do this for each register, or you have to pay for an SMS provider and then a customer's phone number. 
b) You require access to your customers' email account, something people are sometimes reluctant to give. 

Plus, also on offer is a free integrated business intelligence report. This gives you an analysis of your customers' payments. It contains details, some of which only the big retailers get now.

It is a good deal.

Try DTI now free, it will take a minute to set up!

If you are like me and always count parcels and objects coming in, this is a cool app that will save you time. What it does is count objects in a photo. 

I took a lot of pencils and put them on the table, now how many are there? Do you want to count? Often we have too.

 

I then ran it through the app and got this in a few seconds.

It missed a few, but it looks pretty accurate, I have about 116.

I then tried it on a range of coins, and it counted them correctly.

 

 

Here is a video explaining details on how it counts and how it can be used  

It is available on android and apple details here.
